A Sylvan Lake woman is in stable condition in an Edmonton hospital after a head-on collision near early Tuesday morning.

The 55-year-old woman was airlifted by STARS to U of A Hospital in Edmonton following the 7:15 a.m. collision.

Police say an eastbound car crossed the centre line and struck a cement truck on the Aspelund Road just east of Hwy 20. The driver of the cement truck was uninjured, but the female driver of the car had to be extricated from her vehicle by the Bentley fire department.

Aspelund Road was blocked for three hours with traffic being rerouted. Sylvan Lake RCMP, Bentley Fire Department and a collision analyst from Red Deer responded to the crash.
